5G Innovation Lab
powered by Microsoft Azure

TechStar 5G innovation lab is a facility or center where companies, researchers, and other stakeholders can collaborate and experiment with new 5G technologies and applications. The labs is designed to provide a testing ground for innovative ideas and solutions that can be applied to real-world scenarios.


A 5G innovation lab provides an opportunity for researchers, businesses, and other stakeholders to explore the full potential of 5G technology and to develop innovative solutions that can benefit society as a whole.

5G network infrastructure

The lab should have access to the latest 5G network infrastructure, including Virtual base stations, antennas, and other equipment.

Prototyping tools

Tools and equipment for developing and testing new 5G applications and services, including software-defined radios and other prototyping tools.

Collaboration space

An open and collaborative space where researchers and other stakeholders can come together to share ideas and work on projects.

Access to data

Access to real-world data, including network performance data, user behavior data, and other relevant information.

Testing environment

A controlled testing environment where new 5G applications and services can be tested and evaluated before being deployed in the real world.

Augmented reality

5G can enable augmented reality applications by providing low-latency, high-bandwidth communication between devices.


TechStar uses and advocates using Azure MEC and Azure Stack, 5G network operators that organizations can create a comprehensive solution that can enable a wide range of 5G use cases, such as smart manufacturing, connected vehicles, and remote healthcare.

Overall, the combination of Azure MEC and Azure Stack provides a powerful platform for enabling 5G network capabilities and services, enabling organizations to unlock the full potential of 5G technology.

Azure MEC is a platform that provides cloud services and computing resources at the edge of the network, closer to the end-users. This technology can enable low-latency, high-bandwidth applications and services that require real-time processing and decision-making capabilities. With Azure MEC, 5G network operators can deploy computing resources closer to the end-users, reducing latency and improving the overall quality of service.

Azure Stack, on the other hand, is a hybrid cloud platform that enables organizations to run Azure services on-premises, in a private cloud environment. This technology can enable organizations to deploy 5G network capabilities and services in a secure, private environment, while still being able to leverage the benefits of the cloud, such as scalability and flexibility.

With Azure MEC, 5G network operators can deploy computing resources at the edge of the network, while Azure Stack enables organizations to deploy 5G network capabilities and services in a private, secure environment.
